AS Roma want a big fee if they are to sell Radja Nainggolan.

AS Roma have told a whole host of Premier League sides that it will take a huge fee of £26 million for the Stadio Olimpico club to part with Belgian international midfielder Radja Nainggolan, report the Express.

Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are all mentioned by the report as clubs who could be interested in signing the tenacious box-to-box player.

Nainggolan only joined Rudi Garcia’s side on a permanent deal in the summer when they paid £7m to Serie A rivals Cagliari for half of his registration, but the Belgian has quickly established himself as one of the club’s most important players and has helped to fill the void created by Kevin Strootman’s injury absence.

With seemingly all of the big Premier League clubs looking to add steel to their midfields, it should be no surprise that Nainggolan has been linked with a move away from Serie A, but the fact that Cagliari still own half of the player’s registration is likely to complicate any potential deal and cause costs to increase.

The report suggests that both Cagliari and Roma are demanding a fee of £13m for their share of the player, making the necessary fee to buy the Belgian international a cool £26m.
